How THE BUILD will transform Martin House

Achieving our fundraising target of £2 million will allow us to transform the hospice. This is vital, as we need to be able to meet the changing needs of children and young people with life-shortening conditions and their families. 

Why do we need to change?

We are Yorkshire’s centre of excellence in paediatric palliative care – supporting children and young people with life-shortening conditions along with their families. Advances in medicine means children and young people with complex, life-shortening conditions are living for longer and with more advanced needs. Therefore, our building needs to adapt and change to meet these needs.  

THE BUILD is a £21.9 million pound project, which will transform the current building. Our vision, is to create a purpose-built space with new and improved facilities. It will ensure that whether a family is visiting for respite or end-of-life care, we can keep providing tailored, specialist care, future proofing the hospice and helping families across Yorkshire for many more years to come.  

Over the next 18 months, we are asking you, our supporters, to help us reach our £2 million fundraising target. Help us complete THE BUILD.

Our ambassador, Gareth Southgate, has seen first-hand how the Yorkshire community relies on the hospice for our specialist care.

Over the last few years, I have met with many of the families who rely on Martin House and have been fortunate enough to hear their remarkable stories. It is clear to me that Martin House plays a vital role in all their lives and will continue to do so long into the future. That is why THE BUILD is so important. It will strengthen its existing services and guarantee its future.

Explore the new hospice

THE BUILD will allow us to deliver the care that matches our expertise, through the facilities, space and equipment we now need. It's time for change. Our plans have been created in collaboration with staff and the families who use our hospice, ensuring their needs are at the centre of this transformation project.

If Thomas is poorly, we need to come to Martin House at short notice. We’re already worried, had no sleep for days and at breaking point. If you forget something, it’s not easy to come home and get it. We just want to concentrate on getting Thomas there quickly and safely. THE BUILD will provide piped oxygen in all the bedrooms, so this will be one thing we don’t need to remember, during what is a very stressful time.
